according to Rock Auto there are different listings for the 2 cabs/chassis lengths. anybody know what the differences are?
this applies to both 2000 and 2005.

Grew up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s
maybe for torsion bar front ends and then for coil spring front ends?

that may be, but both of those types of suspension are used on both length cabs.
could be they aren't described properly.

@pjtoledo: Per the Ford Ranger specification documents I have, the regular cab steering rack for 2000 has a ratio of 21.5:1, while the SuperCab one has a 22.0:1 ratio.

A little extra muscle as the average SuperCab has a higher average GVWR? 2% hardly seems worth it.

If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?

10 bonus points for calling it a Supercab.
